Theron, Roberto, Gonzalez, Antonio and Garcia, Francisco J. (2008): Supporting the understanding of the evolution of software items. In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on Software Visualization 2008. pp. 189-192.

The aim of this paper is to support the awareness of software developers and project managers as regards the evolution of software items by means of the visualization of collaboration between developers and the understanding of the evolution of commercial and open source software items. The proposed design is supported by several interaction techniques and presents detailed information regarding the creation of baselines, branches, revisions and the relationships among them. A case study has been carried out and the usefulness of the tool applied to discover relations and support awareness is revealed through the use of interaction.

Berlanga, Adriana J. and Garcia, Francisco J. (2005): Modelling adaptive navigation support techniques using the IMS learning design specification. In: Proceedings of the Sixteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext 2005. pp. 148-150.

Adaptive Navigation Support techniques aim at manipulating web page links to present relevant and appropriate information for each user. This paper sketches how these techniques can be described using a notational method, the IMS Learning Design specification, and introduces our proposal to depict adaptive techniques using this specification.

Berlanga, Adriana J. and Garcia, Francisco J. (2005): Authoring tools for adaptive learning designs in computer-based education. In: Proceedings of the 2005 Latin American conference on Human-computer interaction October 23-26, 2005, Cuernavaca, Mexico. pp. 190-201.

A challenging topic in computer-based education is to develop authoring tools that support the creation of personalized learning designs that, on one hand, do not prescribe any learning approach and, on the other, guarantee the reusability and exchangeability of those learning designs. In this paper we argue that Adaptive Educational Hypermedia Systems (AEHS) can employ the IMS Learning Design (IMS LD) specification as a notational method. In such way, that teachers and designers will have freedom for designing personalized learning flows that are interoperable and reusable. To support our reasoning, first, we briefly explain AEHS and their characteristics. Then, we introduce the learning design concept and the IMS LD specification. Subsequently, we present an authoring tool we are developing to define learning designs with adaptive characteristics for AEHS and, subsequently, we illustrate their definition by means of a study case. Afterwards, we point out the strengths and weakness of utilizing IMS LD in AEHS, and finally, we expose conclusions and further work.
